Consider joining the Fort Ord Cleanup and BLM staff on a nature walk in portions of the Fort Ord National Monument that are currently restricted to the public. On May 20, 2023, we will host two walking tours of cleared areas within the Impact Area.

The Nature Walks will depart from the Bureau of Land Management Work Center where you must attend a mandatory safety briefing.

If adverse weather conditions such as lightning and heavy rain are present, the walks will be canceled. Check here for the most up-to-date information.
